N C Saxena panel report for investigation into proposal by the Orissa mining co. for bauxite mining in Niyamgiri

This expert panel report on Vedanta's bauxite mining project in Orissa submitted to MoEF on August 16, 2010 says that the company must not given permission for this project as it has illegally occupied forest land andwill also threaten survival of local tribes. <br>


The proposed mining lease (PML) area, which lies on the upper reaches of the Niyamgiri hills, is surrounded by dense forests and is the habitat for diverse species of plant and animal life. The PML site is largely grassland surrounded by sal forests. This type of grassy
meadow eco-system is usually found on lateritic zones on upper reaches at about 700
metres and above.
